Samuel Garner Affleck received permission to drive the car which he then accidentally reversed into another car.
At the 777 Exotics, an L.A. luxury car rental dealership, little Samuel Garner Affleck backed a Lamborghini into a white BMW. The incident happened on Sunday, June 26, 2022, and fortunately, no one was hurt, reported TMZ.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez went to the exotic car dealership and were looking at different cars when 10-year-old Samuel, who Affleck shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner, asked to sit in the yellow Lamborghini Urus, which costs a whopping $1,475 per day to rent. However, Samuel or someone else had left the car engine running. He put the car in reverse and accidentally backed into the BMW. Videos show that the rear bumper on the passenger side of the Lambo made contact with the BMW's front wheel and possibly, the fender.

After the fender bender, Samuel got out of the car to check what happened. Soon, Affleck and Lopez came around to make sure Samuel was okay. Affleck and the employees at the luxury car rental were engaged in an animated conversation while Samuel was standing quietly on the side. A representative from Affleck’s team told TMZ that there was no damage and that everyone was ok.
According to employees, the cars had been parked closely together, reported New York Post. An employee said, “When [Samuel] got into the car, it jerked back and forth. We have a small lot and the cars are close.”
The incident didn’t deter the pair from looking at more cars. “They seemed happy and continued to browse." the employee said, adding that the dealership would more than gladly welcome the stars back. “Affleck loves cars,” the dealership staffer said, hoping they make an appearance soon.
Samuel Garner Affleck is Affleck and Garner’s son. The two were married from 2005 to 2018. They first met in 2001 on the set of Pearl Harbor; however, they were dating other people at the time. The duo then worked together on the 2003 Daredevil film in which Affleck played the titular character Matt Murdock alias Daredevil and Garner played Elektra Natchios, daughter of a billionaire and highly-trained in martial arts. Making their first appearance as a couple in 2004, they got married in 2005 and welcomed their first child, Violet, six months later. They went on to have two more kids, Seraphina and Samuel, in 2009 and 2012 respectively.

The couple got divorced in 2015, detailing their separation in a statement to PEOPLE. “After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce,” the couple said in the joint statement. “We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time. This will be our only comment on this private, family matter. Thank you for understanding.”
Now, Affleck is together and engaged to singer, dancer, and actress Jennifer Lopez. They had been engaged in 2002 as well; however, they broke it off later. “We didn't try to have a public relationship,” Lopez told PEOPLE in 2016. “We just happened to be together at the birth of the tabloids, and it was like 'Oh my God.' It was just a lot of pressure.” Following this, they had to postpone their wedding for safety reasons and soon, they ended up calling off their engagement. The two have remained friends throughout the years with Affleck even praising her performance in Hustlers (2020) and saying she should have won an Oscar for the film.
